Kahlan and Richard set out to rescue a girl named Annabelle, the only other living Confessor, from being sold to a rogue wizard and his thugs. Flynn accidentally gets confessed by Anabelle. Kahlan tells Anabelle she must be trained to control her power, but Flynn tricks them and runs away with Anabelle. Anabelle manages to confess a few men in the woods, including Richard after he shows up with Kahlan. Flynn realizes they must still find the Stone of Tears or everyone will die, and they find an amulet inside the tomb. They use the Quillion taken from the rogue wizard to drain Anabelle's powers and release Richard and Flynn from her confession. The amulet contains a compass with the inscription: "This orb will guide the seeker's way".
